I love this necklace named Fifi that I found in imyourpresent's Etsy shop late last night. I love chinese-crested dogs so I think this adorable little pooch necklace is just the sweetest thing. imyourpresent has a lot of other fab items in her shop and they seem to sell out fast. I wonder if she does custom orders? I would love to have a necklace like this with my pekingese, Bianca, inside.... maybe with mint-green or pink lace around the edges??
Hi... my name is Kim Ripley (formerly Sobanski). I am 29 years young and I am from Mount Clemens, MI. My passion lies in art, photography, and creating jewelry. I graduated from Wayne State University in Dec. 2005 with a BFA in photography. I would have to say that I have been an artist my entire life. I think I was born with a crayon in my hand.
When I am not busy creating I enjoy other things. I love thrift stores, antique shops, and yard sales. I have always got my eyes open for strange, tacky, and kitschy things. I am also obsessed with searching out Ebay and Etsy for neato finds!
Which leads me to my next interest- found objects. I collect found items (photos, letters, shopping lists, etc.). I am a huge fan of Found magazine and I even have a 2-page spread of photos and a letter in Dirty Found #2!!
I am currently married to the love of my life~ Joe (we've been together since Nov '99). We have a daughter, Chloe Pearl, who was born in December 2009. We also have one min-pin dog named JoJo.
We hope to make it out to Vegas someday and get out of Michigan.
